I studied at Winchester School of Art for my BA, and then at Kingston University where I obtained an MA in Applied Fine Art. I now live and work near Woking in Surrey.
My inspiration comes from life itself, and my favourite subjects are wildlife and people. Recently I have been fascinated with people in an urban environment. I am fortunate living so close to a big city where it is easy to observe and photograph people going about their daily lives. I particularly like places which are busy and where people congregate, as a result my paintings have become increasingly busy. I aim to create work that is ambitious in scale and complexity and that encourages the viewer to take a closer look and get involved in the many characters. My many influences include the work of Pissarro, Hopper and Lowry. I work in a variety of media but particularly like acrylic for its speed and flexibility.
